What's Included

The overnight program integrates a variety of traditional camp activities—including swimming, arts and crafts, sports, and lots of music—to inspire in children natural discovery, cooperation, responsibility, and independence. During all sessions, campers participate in a community meeting twice daily, to sing songs, hear stories, and share important camp news. Morning activities include wilderness and survival, sports and games, cooking, arts and crafts, music and drama, and swimming lessons. We enjoy three meals a day and two snacks, all including local produce and products when possible (In 2014, we’ll even be trying to grow a few of our own!). After lunch, campers and staff benefit from one hour of quiet time, during which many campers write letters home, read, make friendship bracelets, play quiet games, and even take a good nap! In the afternoon, campers choose from a variety of games and projects developed by staff members. Some of these have included candle making, the ever popular “Zombie Wars”, sock wrestling, optional art projects, Capture the Flag, wild raspberry hikes, Gaga Ball, building wilderness shelters, and forestry integrate a variety of traditional camp activities—including swimming, arts and crafts, sports, and lots of music—to inspire in children natural discovery, cooperation, responsibility, and independence. During the warmest part of the day, campers enjoy the pool, games on the field, a chance to shoot hoops or throw frisbee, or time to build and explore in the woods. In the evening, campers gather to participate in a community activity: skit and talent night, counselor hunts, guest performances (including live animals and local bands!), dances, and, of course, campfires with s’mores. Campers spend their week in traditional Adirondack Shelters with up to eight other campers. Each cabin has at least one senior counselor and a junior counselor or CIT. Our girls and boys cabins are located on separate ends of campus.
